At The Drive In Announces First New Album in 17 Years — and Adds SA Tour Date

Posted By on Wed, Feb 22, 2017 at 1:01 PM


The good news: At the Drive In just announced its first record in 17 years. The even better news: The legendary El Paso post-hardcore band will tour the new album, titled in•ter a•li•a, in the Alamo City this summer.

The album (Latin for "among other things") is being produced by none other than Omar Rodriguez-López, ADTI's signature noise-maker guitarist, and represents the long-overdue followup to the the band's 2000 opus Relationship of Command. Today, the band teased the new album with another promising new track — "Incurably Innocent" which sounds like a return to Rodriguez-López's chunkier, more straightforward riffing.

That we've finally got a release date (and a new song) for an actual new ADTI album is further sign the beloved Texas rockers have moved beyond some scattered reunion-tour dates and are finally settling into some new work. And on Wednesday, the five piece (which this time around features Sparta's Keeley Davis instead of founding member Jim Ward) added a San Antonio stop to their tour, at the Aztec Theatre on Friday, June 9 — just a month after the new album's drop date. This station is now operational.

Friday, June 9, 8pm, Aztec Theatre, 104 N. St. Mary's St.

Pre-sale begins Wednesday,
March 1 at 10 AM. Tickets go on sale to the general public Friday, March 3 at 10AM. For more info, see the Aztec's Facebook page.
